  • antispasmodics etc.

    Does anyone out there know of a antispasmodic that you can take only as needed. I have tried Detrol LA and many of the other urinary frequencey drugs but they all seem to give me trouble. I wondered if there is anything I can ask my uro about that can be taken only as needed. Thanks ahead of time.

    I have on hand hyoscyamine (brand name Levsin SL) that I take only as needed.

    Stay safe

      I've been using ditropan and now vaginal valium.
      • 27 year old student
      • Had symptoms since I was 5
      • Been on forums since '07, knew I had this since then, received mild treatment without true diagnosis due to anxiety. Diagnosed by symptoms on 4/08/11.
      • Had first horrible flare in 07, bad doctors, had to research IC myself to clue in onto what it was. After following the diet I went into remission.
      • Big flare in 09 due to an untreated bladder infection. Went back into remission in 2012.
      • Symptoms returned 4/1/15. All of my remissions have ended in April-May or September-October. It sounds like a connection to seasonal allergies to me..

      Currently: Continuous Birth Control, vaginal valium (10/6/11), Elmiron (4/08/11), UTA (4/08/11), continuous Trimethoprim for infections (10/6/11), Heating pad, Benedryl, harsh diet

      What I know works: Benedryl, diet, birth control, UTA, valium, ditropan, soma

      What didn't work: Elavil, vistaril (12/22)
